With the quick adaption of precision agriculture by farmers in the last ten years, there has become a shortage in the workforce of employees with knowledge of precision agriculture technologies. Results from a statewide survey completed in Indiana by Ivy Tech Community College showed that in the future, this trend would continue to grow.
To tackle this issue in our state, meetings were held with various local businesses in the agriculture sector. Ideas of course curriculum, training materials, and studies of emphasis were gathered. With their input, a precision agriculture degree was born at Ivy Tech Community College.
